The Ministry of Education announced it will extend the school year one month in schools around the country that were affected by Hurricane Georges. Schools are used as hurricane shelters. The Resolution 2001-98 said that schools that missed 15 days, will postpone the school year by one week. Students at schools that lost three weeks to a month will remain in school for 15 days more. Those that attended schools that had to be closed for more than a month or more will stay in school for another month.
